Lochinver Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Although little, if any, more than a village, Lochinver, with a hotel and shops is more like a capital in the largely unpopulated area of the Sutherland coast where it is located. Any route to it is spectacular, none more so than the tiny, winding, single track road to Achltibuie. Only careful drivers need come here!

One of the most surprising places found on this diminutive road is Achins Bookshop at Inverkirkaig, where a path leads to the Falls of Kirkaig and then on to the mountain of Suilven. This mountain makes up in its isolated location and sectacular ridge what it lacks in height and it is a serious expedition to scale it.

Three miles north of Lochinver is a wondeful picturesque bay with extensive sand, Achmelvich.

Other mountains in the area are Canisp and Quinag, shaped like a Y.
